APRIL 1994 was the end of an era in the history of Liverpool Football Club and 44,339 filled Anfield to witness it – the last day of the standing Kop.
Nineteen years on, memories have faded of the famous old terrace, but in our new free app magazine we’ve got some must-see video for anybody that ever climbed the steps, swayed with their mates and cheered on The Reds while standing on The Kop.
Thanks to Mike Nevin’s dad, Bernard, who took a clunky 90s video recorder to that landmark last day, we’ve got a series of films marking the occasion, including an impromptu interview with the late Lenny Campbell, aka Dr Fun – a familiar figure on the Kop for many years.
There’s also footage from inside and outside the stadium, before and after the game with Norwich and we’ve also sourced photos, tickets and leaflets from that last day.
Issue three also includes:
- Video interviews with two of Liverpool’s young prospects, Joao Carlos Teixeira and Ryan McLaughlin
- The need for stability at Liverpool
- A feature on home advantage and ‘Fortress Anfield’
- A look back (with a twist) at Liverpool 4 Arsenal 4 in 2009
- Roy Henderson on the magic of football
- Dan Fitzsimmons on why the popular perception of footballers is all wrong
- Kristian Walsh on Paddy Berger
- A look at modern football and the fans protesting against it
Away from football, issue 3 also features:
- An in-depth review of Liverpool Sound City
- A review of Silent Sleep’s album and an interview with singer Chris McIntosh
- A feature on unsigned musicians who have become YouTube sensations
- A review of Lianne La Havas at Rampworx Liverpool
- Sefton Park Cricket Club and their link up with the charity CALM
As with the first two magazines, features are backed up with exclusive videos and audio from the Anfield Wrap team. The mag is available, free, in Newsstand and the App Store. To get started on an iPad, click here: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/anfield-wrap/id583362683?mt=8
We would be made up if you could download it, read it, rate and review it and let us know what you think. We’re also desperate to reach the technophobes out there who swerve the internet – so if your mum, dad, nan, granddad, sister, whoever was/is/might be a fervent Kopite, download the mag and show them it!
A version for Android/PC will follow in the next week or two and will be available at http://app.theanfieldwrap.com where you can read issues one and two now.
Thanks for supporting The Anfield Wrap.
